Arthurs Visiting Fellowships
The Arthurs Visiting Fellowships are designed to provide senior legal researchers with an opportunity to visit Osgoode and collaborate with members of Osgoode’s faculty and/or Research Centres and Programs. Fellows will be given the opportunity to present a research seminar during their residency that shares their research project with the Osgoode community.
Artist in Residence
This bold and innovative program brings together artistic creativity with the exploration of justice and the law. Annually, Osgoode brings in an artist or artists, from any discipline, to work on projects focused on interpreting legal history, examining law’s realities today, and imagining law’s future, whether in Canada or elsewhere in the world.
The Fellowship is supported by the Fund for Innovation in Law and Media (FILM), an endowment created with a generous donation by Kathryn Podrebarac ’92. The purpose of FILM is to fund experiential education programs focused on the use of visual advocacy to address social justice issues, educate the public about the law and legal process, and enhance the practice of dispute resolution. The intent of FILM is to bring together experts from a variety of disciplines – from filmmakers and editors to lawyers and jurists – and will also provide key roles for Osgoode students in the development and delivery of its projects.
Expressions of interest should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Journalist in Residence
Osgoode’s new Journalist in Residence Program, which will get underway in the fall of 2017, is designed to explore stories about justice and legal education against the backdrop of Osgoode’s commitment to researching and teaching law in context.
McMurtry Visiting Clinical Fellowship
The first program of its kind in Canada, the McMurtry Visiting Clinical Fellowship honours Osgoode alumnus R. Roy McMurtry LLB ’58, LLD ’91, former Attorney General and Chief Justice of Ontario, and former Chancellor of York University.
The McMurtry Visiting Clinical Fellowship brings leading lawyers and related practitioners to Osgoode for a term or part of a term to provide mentorship to students and lawyers engaged in experiential education initiatives. Fellowship holders may also teach and get involved with Osgoode’s mooting and lawyering programs, participate in research projects, deliver public and faculty lectures, and assist with institutional projects in their areas of expertise and interest.
Osgoode Catalyst Fellowships
The Osgoode Catalyst Fellowships are designed to bring to Osgoode emerging scholars who have a demonstrated interest in a career in law teaching, and to support and mentor scholars who will enhance the diversity of the profession. Fellows will be given the opportunity to present a faculty seminar with the aim of preparing a major article for publication, to pursue an active affiliation with one of our research centers, and to teach a course at the Law School.
